alvn:

There appears to be a bug in perl's Encode library. A snapshot

of what will be RT 3.0.4 is available at http://fsck.com/~jesse/rt-snap.tgz
has a fix that should work around this issue.

Your version of Encode.pm is old (you’re using Red Hat’s perl package?). I
fixed it by using CPAN to upgrade the Encode module.
